Autonomous Vehicle Study, North Dakota, 2015

  • Date Enacted: Mar 20, 2015

Summary

The Legislative Assembly of North Dakota passed a bill to conduct a study of autonomous vehicles within the state. If funded, this study would have considered the testing of autonomous vehicles in North Dakota and establishing an automated corridor in the region. The bill provides a definition for automated vehicles, based on the standards of the Society of Automotive Engineers, and calls for research into the effects on how such vehicles can reduce traffic fatalities and crashes, eliminate driver error, reduce traffic congestion, and improve fuel economy with better highway capacity utilization.
